not starting from scratch. i worked very closely with america's cup. the people's plan was a product of a lot of community input and a lot of those concerns and issues came right out of the same area of the waterfront we're talking about now. because that was so recently gathered, that input, that became a great foundation for us to say, hey, if you've already spent some of those 260 meetings we had in the last two years in the america's cup, your thoughts, your comments weren't wasted on us. we recorded them, actually color-coded them to make sure i took track of what we heard in the beginning of 2010, what we heard in 2011, what we heard in 2012. these are actually online. hosted by wed's website. there are pages and pages of community input about transit, about pedestrian safety, about accessibility, about employers worried about their employees getting to work. and we also wanted to make sure that we had comments resolved in time because we had a great experience with the america's cup. and ware going to have more experiences with the america's cup. last year was the first test of what is
better. i have been to this commission talking about america's cup. that was a tremendously important experience. actually we treated that input from the outreach seriously and we rowntded up the input we got from america's cup and through the progress reports and at the cac meetings of this project and at the hearing we got input as well and on the website you will see pages of community input we managed and structured and categorized it and it's shaping this assessment for us. but i don't want to down play how important it was to play with the america's cup. we piloted and tried our hand at new things and erks lie and a project and carried hundreds of people and that is a pilot project that could have a legacy. we have the bike sharing program this spring and we work with the companies to do a proxy bike sharing program and get it place for the america's cup and valet parking and giving pedestrians real time estimates how long it goes from point a, say the ballpark to the ferry building and helping visitors orient themselves around the waterfront and this is a advantage that we h
's no city half itself size in america that doesn't have this and as a result many world class acts bypass san francisco. we will now have a place for the family shows, those concerts and performances and to date we haven't had a location for. one of our mostarden supporters and the san francisco convention bureau, sf travel. they see this project as filling a distinct void in the city's portfolio thattee can make available for conventions and meetings and events in our city. very important. we will make a promise with jobs and 1700 permanent positions and over 4,000 other jobs and aggressive hiring and business commitments new economic engine for this part of our city. we will create massive economic benefits. jenn just ran through those. 10 to 20 million annual direct tax few revenue to the city. over $50 million of one time impact fees and 60 million annually in new visitor spending. all of that again without any money from the city's general fund or any new taxes and last but not least we want to use this arena as an engineer to create a great new public space in san francisco.
in the world and we have honors such as the greenest city in north america, the walkable city, and the best green policies, the green tech of north america and forbes recognized that san francisco has the most green jobs in the united states. that's jobs. that's one of the most important things we are doing for the whole country. [applause] and we are creating and sustaining jobs as well as supporting new industries in our city. our energy watch program creates or sustains 180 jobs a year. san francisco has now achieved 80% landfill diversion rate setting the national recycling and compost records as the high of any city in north america.

on in understanding the transportation mediation and impacts going forward and since we experienced america's cup now twice i am wondering in the interim and the mode of continuous improvement given that i think we already have some congestion that we experience on the embarcadero what are some of the steps could be taken for the neighborhood and community now rather than waiting for all the studies to be completed? i think we had findings already out of the recent experiences with fleet week and everything else and what is your department doing to change it and whether it's the traffic lights or i will throw it out -- do we take away things and create more traffic lanes and i don't know and outrageous ideas like that. >> or bike tracks. >> thank you. what we found out the opportunity to pilot has been invaluable because working with america's cup some of the data is now extraordinary. bart alone carried 250,000 more people than it typically does and the giant's celebration day and the important tool we have been working with is having the incident command system. it's not once in a while team that
particularly as we successfully sail through our species experiences with america's -- in the next years or so. the foundation of the maritime business is the services that attract boats and ships and keeps us going in business. but commuter ferries and excursions are really kind of the core business of the port's maritime sector. if you take a look at it. we average, we carry on average 3.2 million ferry passengers annually these are commuter passengers moving between home and work expense and is we transport over 3 million excursion passengers annual low people looking at sites alcatraz and golden gate bridge. and then we see international cruise ships that alleged violentors to and from the port and crews members aboard those ships speak to our ferry services, you're, our ferry services operate chiefly out of the downtown ferry terminal behind the ferry building. they also operate out of peer 39, and 41 in the north. the gate b number downtown ferry terminal is for the north bound lanes such as value lay hough and gate e is for ala immediate a eoakland and island services blue and g

the greatest music festival in america for three days here in golden gate park. >> we work with them a lot to prevent and not have any problems. and what we have done with them is have roads built and have pieces under whatever equipment is parked. they do all of that. and then when it gets removed, they have very little damage. >> for me as a gardener and having to stay here and work after they leave, i am more than happy when i see their greening team come through and green everything up. >> we have given them pieces that they can use, and pieces that they can't use. so we are allowing them, again, because we have irrigation in the ground so they can use, and if they put up a tent they can stake a tent in some places, they can't stake a tent in other places. so we are protecting the golden gate park asset. >> so what is really special about the partnership is not just the incredible music, that about 70,000 of our closest friends are listening to right now, but for the respect that everybody has for this park and the work that we do with the outside land music promoters to make sure that

if there wasn't a level of commitment. here's what i can tell you. at america's cup we learned what we can do. we have a team, a system that is going to be incidental or instrumental to managing loads that are above and beyond extraordinary. i think that is one of the big concerns if we have an arena and ballpark and new development at pier 70, clearly there are going to be demands on the system that are bigger. >> if i can interject and i'm sorry to interrupt. i think mta did an outstanding job around the america's cup and whatever -- the 12 things were happening in the city the same day. absolutely outstanding job. that is a very unique and singular situation. america's cup is not a great comparison because it's specific dates. it's not many days a year every year into eternity. and, so, i think this is much more about the structural day-to-day operations of muni. >> thank you. that's where i was going. so, when we did this episodic heavy lift, we learned there are going to be things hard to sustain. why do we not do this kind of service all the time? what are the capital shortcomings of th

of the fleet week activity and i highlight some of those here, so with the america cup's races which we had been planning for starting at the beginning of the year. three successful exercises in preparation for the first week of racing that took place in august and continued in october and as the mayor mentioned october was incredibly busy for us with america's cup and the fleet week activities we had going on, to additional exercises. we had a senior leader seminar and a disaster aid presentation on marina green. other things that took place that the mayor mentioned the bluegrass and castro street parade and a finer and giants game and lead to the playoffs and all happened on the same day so when we go we definitely go big. after those activities we had the annual shake out drill, one of the largest demonstrations of the public what their responsibilities are to be ready and we rolled into the playoffs and the world series and admiral you will be happy to know this facility is used on a regular basis and get the departments together and communicate and collaborate and make sure we're p

to the metrics that will come out of the mayor's goals and in fact in comparison with other cities in america and throughout the world. my view is that we're dealing not only with tragedy but we're dealing with health issues, health costs, and that i think should be one of the major issue that could come out eventually from the psac so i believe that there are a lot of issues that can be done. i think taking a strategic view of the psac as well as incorporating all the input that comes into the city that people in the psac, we should be doing our own individual -- we do that when we submit a report to the board of supervisors but we can spend time actually pulling things together, looking at the data which may or may not come from the organizations in the city, and pull that together and make recommendations on a continual basis to the board of supervisors and meet goals that we want to meet with regard to pedestrian safety in the future. also i have a feeling that -- and again, i walk a lot and i'm always observing things -- that we really have to develop a comity between cars, bicycles and
